Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Job 12:22- “He reveals mysteries from the darkness
And brings the deep darkness into light. “

From God We Learn How to Live
Job 13 -25 “True wisdom and real power belong to God; from him we learn how to live, and also what to live for. If he tears something down, it’s down for good; if he locks people up, they’re locked up for good. If he holds back the rain, there’s a drought; if he lets it loose, there’s a flood. Strength and success belong to God; both deceived and deceiver must answer to him. He strips experts of their vaunted credentials, exposes judges as witless fools. He divests kings of their royal garments, then ties a rag around their waists. He strips priests of their robes, and fires high officials from their jobs. He forces trusted sages to keep silence, deprives elders of their good sense and wisdom. He dumps contempt on famous people, disarms the strong and mighty. He shines a spotlight into caves of darkness, hauls deepest darkness into the noonday sun. He makes nations rise and then fall, builds up some and abandons others. He robs world leaders of their reason, and sends them off into no-man’s-land. They grope in the dark without a clue, lurching and staggering like drunks.”
I really like this passage. I believe the end times are upon us. There are many things that are happening in the world that lead me to believe that. (But all of that is another post.) One thing that gives me comfort is that God is in charge of it all. He IS sovereign, and he IS the one who allows things to happen- all for His glory. The leaders of nations, the falling of nations- He is in control. And I can trust Him. And I’m so glad for that. 🙂
This series is a new series. I’m calling it “Emory’s Mysteries” because Emory is the one dyeing these. As she has watched her mama run a business dyeing yarn, she often wants to help. Sometimes I let her. Each of these colorways will be one of a kind, as there is no way to really replicate her work. lol
Emory at 18 months, with Abby
This first one is called “Abby’s Flower Clothes.” She named it after her beloved doll, Abby. As a small child, she took the doll everywhere. She slept with her, and loved her. One day, she realized that the clothes could come off. After that, Emory rarely slept with Abby, but only wanted her flower clothes. And that is all she still sleeps with. Do you know how hard it is to find a nine-inch doll’s clothes when a toddler misplaces them? But somehow, we have managed to keep up with them, over the course of 4.5 years. They are tattered and have holes in them. But, they are well loved!!
